Getting ready for a gallery show is a lot of work. It's 8 days away and I feel very compressed for time right now. I have a sculpture of a peacock I am trying to finish. Also, I have been working on getting my new website up and running and that should roll out by the weekend.
I have been spending way too much time on my website. The software I am using is so touchy that if I modify anything in the html at all, it will freak out and send everything back to default even after I have changed and saved things numerous times. But I am getting it done and that is what is most important.
I met with my sports doctor today to go over the results of my MRI that I had last Friday. I like my doc: he is respectful, friendly, and earnest. But I realized for the first time today that he is god-awful short. Normally I am sitting down when I see him or he is sitting down whilst I hop around on one leg, but today we stood side by side to view the MRI and I towered over him.
Good news is that I do not have a fracture. Bad news is that I have tendonosis and a slight ankle sprain and some other incomprehensible verbage of strain, sprain, pull, and general wonkiness. Basically, several things are slightly screwed up, which translates to a whole bunch of exercises in my future.
So, I am upping the special exercises and he has given me and running out (figuratively) to buy orthotics and he approved me using an elliptical trainer. I am about to start researching which one to buy without spending as much as a car or a tropical vacation. Any suggestions? I want to buy one by the end of the month.
So for your enjoyment, I have pictures of my MRI. I had to pay for the disc, but it's my ankle damn it. I like the close up and distorted ones that you can't tell what it is; I think I see a series of paintings in my future.
I especially like these segments; it make you realize how the fibula is awfully skinny. (Or my ankle is extra fat!)
I have nearly 200 of these photos, but I will spare you from the rest of them.
